I love old movies but this is not good at all.

An amusing turn of events here. ItÂs like if the Pope was a bad guy and Mehmet Ali Agca was the good guy, this movie twists events, uh, somewhat, and makes Wild Bill the scum of the earth, killing off Indians, taking bribes, killing people for their property, and the quest of one man, Johnny Rebel (Look THAT name up in your history books kids) to get rid of that gun totin varmint once and for all! Ha ha! I suppose they put that in there to distract you from boring yourself out watching the many MANY MANNNY scenes of horses running around, and a white Palomino who seems to have a mind of itÂs own! No reason for this, unless itÂs some kind of really really deep metaphor involved that I missed. The ending for this actually is quite great though, as Johnny Rebel goes into town almost alone and singlehandedly kills everyone, no card game involved! WILD!

We'll as far as movies go it wasnt all bad it was a good b western but it wasn't historically accurate but it did have the acting talents of the great denver pyle who starred In such film classics as bonnie and clyde and the dukes of hazzard as "Uncle Jesse" Good movie but becasue of its accuracy i have to give it 3 out of 5 stars :) but a good picture and something you should see
